Sew Sweet

** 12/27/15 Honorable Mention at 613 Avenue Create! **

Hi everyone! Well, Christmas is finally upon us and I hope you all are having a wonderful time of preparation with family and friends! I've been busy creating and am happy to share the first of two Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration projects for LTSCB #68 - Anything Goes! which is our last challenge of the year! We're being sponsored this time by Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet, Angie's Digital Stamps and A Day For Daisies! Come play with us!

I chose the absolutely adorable 'Daisy May Sewing' image from Angie's Digi Stamps to create a fun thank you card. A few weeks ago I treated myself to a black Friday special - a Janome Sew Mini 124 sewing machine, and OMG, I l.o.v.e. it! I created a cute patchwork type background with three horizontal strips of coordinating papers.

Isn't little Daisy May just the cutest?! When I saw this image I knew I had to have it because I have several sewing-themed stamp sets that I've had for several years and were begging to finally be used! ;)

Of course I added my signature big bow, and this time I affixed a small paper rose to the center of it. I also created a faux spool of thread to pair with the stamped vintage darning needles element.

And I found a couple more cute embellishments to use - an adorable scissors charm and a small button. ;)

I kept the inside fairly simple, with a stamped sentiment on a layered panel. I also stamped a pair of scissors and button (stamped off once) in the lower right corner.

I'd love to enter this sweet thank you card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock, Cricut Reds and Pinks cardstock, scrap of Kraft cardstock, Stampin' Up! All Abloom DSP (#133703)
